— A South Carolina woman won a $350,000 home Friday that the Carolina Hurricanes gave away to celebrate the team's 10th anniversary in North Carolina.

Barbara Leonard, of Pageland, S.C., was among a group of finalists in the contest on the ice between the second and third periods of the Canes' game against the Florida Panthers when she found the winning jersey inside a box.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is in Wake Forest.
